New Place For WWI Censorship

A letter dend on 22.4.1915 from MAKOW (Lwiw gubernya?) to the Red Cross in Copenhagen. It received Copenhagen on 16.5.15.
On backside the censor mark: Вскрыто военной цензурой - Маковекiй Военный Цензоръ No. 1. The length of the cancelation is 61 mm.
Unfortunately the cancelation on front is a little bid unclear. Is it Lwiw district? And if so is it the city Makoweia ca. 60 km western of Lwow? Can anybody say something about it? How long did the censorship placed there?
